    Re: changing the drinking age

    I'd prefer to keep it at 21. If it changes to 18, I don't think America could handle it..well, at least those states who haven't changed the law yet. 18, you're an "adult", yes, but most are just making it through highschool. They hardly know what to do with themselves. If the law changed it's legal drinking age to 18, I think all hell would break loose. That's my opinion.

    Joining the army is a choice that 18 year olds and up make. Government approves or disapproves on their own accord. Even if that's not the case, my point is, they can control the situation. If 18 year olds start drinking..they'll think they're free to do whatever they want [=__= which they are] and as I said before, all hell will break loose. I'm telling you, it's not a good idea..

    But that's just my opinion.

    I think that the age is something that works and it is only there to help keep people safer. I see a reason to changing but what we have in place is allready working!

    Re: changing the drinking age

    I'm 'bout to break some reality here, although I don't drink often or that much, I don't believe that the drinking age should be 21. It's much more than the fact that it makes no sense that the govt. says that at 18 you're old enough to vote, own land, be responsible, and die for your country. There is one good reason why it should be changed back to 18, "There is no such Thing as a Responsible Drunk!!!" Some of you are probably wondering why I say such a thing... It's based on personal experience. Two of my uncles are drunks, it's because of alcohol that one of them is disowned. My grandfather was an alcoholic, his father was one, and his father was one. My uncles are in there 40's for godsake!!! They are supposed to be responsible and they are not. I had heard that one state wanted to raise the legal drinking age to 25, 'cause of all the accidents and stuff that was happening. The only thing that would have succeded in doing is raising the number of under-age drinking incidents. And we've already tried banning alcohol once and we see where that got us. We've got to realise that raising the age or banning alcohol use isn't going to work, so lowering it isn't really going to matter 'cause there are already alot of people under the age of 21 drinking anyway. I end this with a repeat of what I said earlier,"There is no such Thing as a Responsible Drunk!!!"

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Yeah, so it's better that we allow them get easier access and drunk three years earlier so we can have them drunk driving and doing all kinds of crap at an earlier age, cause that makes sense.

    Re: changing the drinking age

    I just don't see any problems with it being 21. So why should we risk the trouble that will come along if we change it to 18. Also, a lot of high school kids are still 18, so they would be legally be allowed to get alcohol and would give it to all their younger high school friends with more ease.
